Spontaneous hematoma of the psoas muscle is a rare entity whose incidence varies between 0.6% and 6.6% and is potentially fatal. Although hematomas of traumatic origin are reported, spontaneous hemorrhages are relatively more frequent. Spontaneous iliopsoas hematomas usually occur in patients with coagulopathy due to hemophilia or anticoagulants/antithrombotics. Clinically, patients present with pain in the right iliac fossa, groin or back, with a flexed hip and tenderness in passive extension, ...

Tuberculosis continues to be endemic in our country. Skin involvement would be underdiagnosed rather than rare. The combination of two clinical forms of skin tuberculosis is even rarer, especially in an immunocompetent boy. Young 11-years-old boy, with no tuberculosis contagion, has been presenting an asymptomatic plaque papulo-crouteuse on his right knee for 4 months (Figure 1 and Figure 2). Clinical examination reveals homolateral crural adenopathy; non-inflammatory, fistulized to the skin. Th...
